A Spanish version of Brazilian writer and journalist Fernando Morais’ latest book The Last Soldiers of the Cold War about the Cuban Five was presented Tuesday within the framework of the Third International Conference on World Balance on-going from January 28 to 30 at Havana’s International Conference Center.
